Hilti Store Representative
What's the role?
You'll operate the Hilti Store in Edmonton, North London, maximising sales opportunities and being responsible for careful stock control. You will work closely with the field-based sales team, our tool repair workshops and our Customer and Credit Services teams in order to provide our customers with outstanding service, and deliver great results.
Who is Hilti?
Unless you work in construction, you probably haven't heard of us. We're a hidden gem.
We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the professional construction sector. Our customers are loyal and enthusiastic about us. So are our people.
We regularly win Great Place to Work awards globally and are very proud to have been placed on the Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For list in the UK by our employees for the past 10 years.
Hilti offers the best of both worlds – friendly teams locally and roles across the UK combined with the opportunities only a company of 30,000 people spread across 120 countries can bring.
What does the role involve?
You will be running the store on a day-to-day basis, where you will be tasked with:
Individual customer service and consultation, including hands-on demonstrations of all the products and services within our range
Execution and coordination of all processes; e.g. order entry, incoming goods, acceptance of repairs, inventory and cash management
Developing existing customer relationships, getting to know and understand the customer and their needs
Establishing new relationships and developing sales leads to pass to the field team, using your excellent social and customer service skills
Implementing marketing campaigns with support from the marketing and branding teams
We’ll teach you everything you need to know about our products, the IT systems you’ll use on the job and advanced sales skills – you just need to be motivated to learn.
Unusually within retail, the store is only open Monday to Friday, allowing you the chance to develop further in your retail career without the need to work weekends. The working hours are from 7.30am - 5pm daily.
What do we offer?
We really value our people and we've worked hard to develop a competitive reward package that reflects this. Some of the benefits we offer include:
*Different ways to work flexibly including working from home and compressed hours so please feel free to talk about what flexibility means to you at your interview
*Genuine career advancement (more than 80% of all leadership roles are filled internally)
*Competitive salary and above-average performance bonus
*6% employer pension contributions
*Private Health Insurance and Employee Assistance Programme
*33 days' holiday (inc. Bank Holidays) plus the ability to purchase 5 days more annually
*Paid leave to work on charitable projects
*Hilti Benefits Box, a reward platform offering a cycle to work scheme and shopping and lifestyle discounts/cashback
Our Head Office is currently based next to Old Trafford but in early 2021 we will move to state of the art new premises at Circle Square in Central Manchester. We will continue to offer free parking for Head Office employees and will be located a short walk from Oxford Rd train station and St Peter's Square tram stop.
Why should you apply?
We have an excellent mix of people and some of our best account managers joined us with no experience. So, if you’ve never worked in sales or construction, that’s fine with us. Success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, no matter what your background.
What you need is:
- Customer-facing experience gained in any industry (sales experience preferred but not essential)
- Excellent customer service skills and a customer-focused approach
- Strong operational and sales skills
- Ability to demonstrate that you're a flexible team player with a hunger to learn
- Mature, assertive and committed to your career development with good communication skills

If we don't have a suitable role for you at the moment, we will keep you in our talent pool for the future so your recruitment process might take a bit longer but we'll be sure to stay in touch.
“How am I going to sell power tools? I’ve never drilled a hole in my life! That’s what I thought when I first joined Hilti, but it’s really not like that. It’s about nurturing your strengths and being rewarded for hard work.”
